First for using wordpress fedora we need to install apache(httpd)server,mysqld,php

yum install httpd
yum install mysql mysql-server
yum install php phpmyadmin

check the status of httpd and mysql

service httpd status
service mysql status

add both to startup

chkconfig httpd on
chkconfig mysql on

if needed restart stop and start the both services
service httpd restart
service mysql restart

any problem with httpd use -t to get the reason

httpd -t

type in the browser localhost to get fedora defaul page

go to /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf and comment all the lines

now downlaod the wordpress form there site

cd /tmp

now decompress the fileto /var/www/html/

tar -xvzf latest.tar.gz -C /var/www/html

change the privilage of the folder by

chmod -R 777 /var/www/html/

now we need to create database

create user user_name identified by password
